Filming has begun on the sequel to Channing Tatum’s box office hit Magic Mike so as we wait in anticipation we hail him as our Man Crush Monday. Magic Mike XXL will once again feature Tatum in the title role as a male stripper an occupation the actor used to do before breaking through as an actor. The former model landed his big break on the dance movie Step Up and has had starring roles in films such as Dear John, 21 Jump Street and White House Down…
Least likely to…hide stuff. When the news broke about his stripping past the actor was releived telling GQ, “I had wanted to tell people…I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t regret one thing. I’m not a person who hides sh*t.”
Impress him with…sports knowledge. Whilst at school he played football, soccer, track and baseball and received a full athletic football scholarship at Glenville State College in West Virginia – but he dropped out of college.
Mention…puppies. One of Tatum’s previous jobs was in an animal hospital. Imagine him (in a tank top obviously) giving food and medication to newborn puppies! I’m welling up!
And another thing…his sister once dressed him up as Barbie. He says, “It’s like my sister said: ‘How can I give this kid so many issues that he becomes a good actor one day?'”
